For the good of your name, lead me and guide me. PSALM 31:3
Your Shepherd knows that you were not made for this place. He knows you are not equipped for this place. So he has come to guide you out. He has come to restore your soul. He is the perfect one to do so.
He has the right vision. He reminds you that “you are like foreigners and strangers in this world” (1 Peter 2:11). And he urges you to lift your eyes from the jungle around you to the heaven above you.
He also has the right direction. He made the boldest claim in the history of man when he declared, “I am the way” (John 14:6). People wondered if the claim was accurate. He answered their questions by cutting a path through the underbrush of sin and death … and escaping alive. He’s the only One who ever did. And he is the only One who can help you and I do the same.
